Haven’t been keeping up with Generation Zero? It’s a Left 4 Dead style co-op shooter, set in an alterate 80s Sweden that’s been overrun with killer robots. Bonus points for a unique premise! Here are the game’s key features:

1980’s Nostalgia. Cutting Edge Visuals.

Explore a vast open world, rendered with the proprietary Apex engine, featuring a full day/night cycle with unpredictable weather, complex AI behavior, simulated ballistics, highly realistic acoustics, and a dynamic 1980’s soundtrack.

Get Ready. Then Fight Back.

All enemies are persistently simulated in the world, and roam the landscape with intent and purpose. By tactically combining weapons, skills and equipment, you’ll be able to lure, cripple, and destroy your enemies. If you manage to destroy a specific enemy component, be it armor, weapons or sensory equipment, the damage is permanent. Enemies will bear those scars until you face them again, whether that is minutes, hours, or weeks later.

1-4 Player Seamless Multiplayer

Go it alone, or team-up with up to three of your friends in seamless co-op multiplayer. Do anything in your power to level the playing field -- scavenge for weapons and equipment, set traps and use the environment to your advantage in intense sandbox combat. Collaborate and combine your unique skills to take down enemies, support downed friends by reviving them, and share the loot after an enemy is defeated. In Generation Zero, living is winning.

Generation Zero hits PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on March 26.
